Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019: LM Ericsson Telephone Company(ERIC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a strong sell rating. According to Zacks, “Ericsson’s business is exposed to geopolitical uncertainties in its operating countries. The company operates in an extremely competitive environment, which comprises big multinational wireless telecom service providers. It faces competition from new and innovative business models in mobile broadband and Internet services. Moreover, soft mobile broadband demand and challenging macroeconomic conditions in the emerging markets are acting as a deterrent for major investments by telecom behemoths and this may hurt Ericsson’s financial performance going forward. The ongoing industry consolidation among customers and major rivals are posing threat to Ericsson, impacting investments adversely and intensifying price competition. However, the stock has outperformed the industry over the past year on an average. The Swedish firm’s R&D investments over the past two years have secured a competitive and industry-leading offering.”

    Today, Bill offers our readers a few of his favorites as Trump meets with Kim Jong Un. Here’s how to cash in regardless of how this summit turns out in the long run.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Last night, President Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore. This was the first meeting between a sitting American president and a North Korean leader. Following the agreement, analysts noted that the document signed by both parties included no concrete details for achieving denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula. Trump responded to criticism by saying he is fully confident that the Korean dictatorship will follow through. A U.S. district court will rule on whether to approve an $85 billion merger between AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) and Time Warner Inc. (NYSE: TWX). The decision comes after about six weeks of debate in a courtroom. The ruling will likely have a significant impact on the proposed bid by The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) for media giant Twenty-First Century Fox Inc. (NYSE: FOXA). The Fed Open Market Committee kicks off its June meeting today. The U.S. central bank is expected to raise interest rates for the second time in 2018. On Wednesday, U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell will likely announce a hike of 0.25% to the benchmark rate to 2%. This would also mark the seventh hike since December 2015. Markets will be looking for clues during Powell’s conference to determine how many additional times the Fed plans to raise interest rates during the final six months of the year.

Yet some individual companies had good news that sent their shares higher. McDermott International (NYSE:MDR), Box (NYSE:BOX), and Hanesbrands (NYSE:HBI) were among the best performers on the day.

The executive committee at the National Conference of Insurance Legislators has adopted a model law for air ambulance insurance claims.

Drafters have tried to balance the interests of the patients, the transportation providers and the insurers, while, at the same time complying with the Federal Airline Deregulation Act.

The act “preempts states from enacting any law related to a price, route, or service of an air carrier, which has been interpreted by some courts as applying to air ambulance service provider charges,” drafters note in a statement in the bill introduction.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2018

Applied Materials’ (NASDAQ:AMAT) stock is a good investment right now for both value and growth investors, especially with the recent price dip. In the past two weeks, the market has fallen quite a bit with the Nasdaq leading the fall. There was a minor correction in the markets which resulted in the Nasdaq being pummeled. However, I believe that while there is a shining gem in the Nasdaq which was already undervalued even before the sell off we experienced. Last month, I gave Applied Materials’ stock a strong buy rating after they posted another record shattering quarter. The stock rallied afterwards but has given back all of it’s gains since their second quarter earnings beat. The tech selloff has created a great opportunity for investors to buy into a undervalued and high growth company.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2018: Allstate Corporation (The)(ALL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Michael Flannelly]

    Wells Fargo analysts see a number of upside catalysts for The Allstate Corporation (ALL), plus a positive trend for automobile insurers as a whole. As such, the analysts upgraded the insurance provider on Thursday.

    The analysts upgraded ALL from “Market Perform” to “Outperform” and boosted its valuation range from $48-$52 to $58-$62. This new valuation range suggests a 16% to 24% upside to the stock’s Wednesday closing price of $50.11.

    “We are upgrading the shares of Allstate to Outperform from Market Perform on the basis of several fundamental reasons unique to the company as well as several positive, emerging structural trends for auto insurers in general,” Wells Fargo analyst John Hall stated. “We do not believe that the market has yet paid for potential unit growth within Allstate’s branded standard book of auto insurance, something we envision occurring over the next 6-12 months.”

    As for some of the positive personal auto insurance sector trends, Hall noted, “These would include shifting demographics toward a safer driving population mix (more old drivers and fewer young drivers), changing driving habits particularly among millennials, a safer U.S. personal auto fleet, rising car sales pointing to positive symbol shift as well as industry conditions encouraging market share consolidation.”

    Wells Fargo boosted Allstate’s 2013 EPS estimates from $4.62 to $4.85 and 2014 EPS estimates from $4.85 to $5.20.

    Allstate shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading on Thursday. The stock is up 24.74% year-to-date.
